I'm organizing a HUGE hoop meet-up/jam at Mammoth Park for Sunday October 10th for WORLD HOOP DAY!
I'm still deciding on two pavilions:
#12 is Lake side, beautiful scenery, flat ground, a nearby playground for children, close restroom facilities, electric, water fountain. Downside: right beside the main walking path used regularly by public; right by the lake means we will disturb fisherman with our music, and limited (but close) parking.
#8 is tucked back in the upper park, beautiful scenery, relatively flat, open ground, away from public, close restrooms (but an uphill walk), close parking (but uphill walk from pavilion) smaller playground equiptment for tots, a volleyball net, water fountain, electric. Downside: Parking and restroom are an uphill walk (about 100 yards), small downgrade hill to one side.
Each pavilion seats about 100 people, although i hope more than that will come to really strengthen the upper east coast area's hoop community!
I will be choosing one (hoopfully) by tomorrow, with your feedback!
I'm hoping that funds will allow me to serve some free food and beer, I"m taking requests for the next week so that everything may be priced out.
I was thinking hot dogs w sauerkraut, potato salad, cupcakes, yeungling?
I also need a rough head count so that I don't run out of anything, or waste anything.
I have a lot of activities planned, and would also like to invite all flow toys out, ie: poi, staff, flag, juggling, etc!
I have some music lined up, if you have or know anyone that will play for free, that is NOT A BAND, please ask them! (there is a separate park fee for dj's and bands, and I only paid for a dj)
If anyone knows a cheap warehouse to get party supplies, ie: plastic cups for a keg, paper plates, utensils, and table covers- pass on the deals!
If there is anything I've overlooked, bring it to my attention, cause, it's been all of two days of loose planning so far.
Hoop to see you out there, and to hear back from YOU!
HAPPY WORLD HOOP DAY!
